98. Megadeth

During the early 60’s many music fans were divided musically into either the Beatles camp or the Rolling Stones camp and they despised the other fans. Nowadays, that seems a little silly, but it wasn’t that long ago that a couple of us at NIHOF remembered that the Metal community had fans divided into the Metallica and Megadeth camps as well.

When Dave Mustaine left (or was kicked out of) Metallica, he formed Megadeth which along with his former band became known as one of the “Big Four” of Thrash Metal. Megadeth kept to the Thrash playbook with a powerful sound and became very popular among the Metal set. They were as controversial as they were successful, as they were riddled with drug abuse, controversial lyrics/moments and a seemingly never ending feud with Metallica. Still together and recording and possessing a huge fan base, Megadeth may be an outside shot to be the next Metal act to get in; especially if the Hall wants to honor Mustaine who was not inducted with Metallica.

Mustain is the quintessenti al rock musician of the nineties and 2000s if it weren't for him we would not have the speed metal greatness that we have achieved to this very day and still listen to if you have any brains left to make this Rock and Roll Hall of Fame a legitimate and respected hall then I suggest you rethink your inducting of Dave Mustaine and make him eligible on the next ballot

Dave Mustain deserves to be in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame because as it were without him there would be no Metallica and as any true super fan of heavy metal knows that it's Mustaine himself who inspires heavy metal to be what it is still to this day he needs to be in!!! Next ballot he's got to be selected or there will be no respect for the hall as little as it has at this point!

I and every single metal listener on the face of the earth would no doubt like to see the remaining three of the Big Four of Thrash follow Metallica into the Rock Hall as soon as possible!
